How are we all?? I hope you are all doing well and you all had a good Valentines Day. Here in Mexico they also celebrate friendship on this day, so its a HUGE celebration...but lets be honest, what isn´t a big celebration here in Mexico!
So news on transfers....I´m staying here in Villahermosa!!! I´ll be finishing the training of Hna. Zúñiga and by the end of this transfer I´ll have 6 months in Barrio Carrizales (Carrizales Ward). I was so happy to be able to stay another transfer in this Ward. I feel like there is still something here for me to do and I´m excited to start this transfer with a fresh start! Its going to be a good one I can feel it!
So this week we received the best gift in the WHOLE WIDE WORLD...we got to go to the TEMPLE!!! I haven´t been to the temple in 3 months and this time it felt so different, it was an unusually powerful session. I have never felt the spirit like that, it was amazing and such a strengthening moment for me in the mission. As I sat in the temple thinking, an overcoming feeling of happiness came over me and I left the temple SO happy. I stayed that happy for 2 whole days. I literally felt like I was floating. It was so cool!! I remember Pres. Magleby said that at times on his mission he felt like he was going to explode from being so happy...that is how I felt. I love Disneyland with all of my heart, but I have to say the the temple is THE happiest place on earth. You cannot find peace or counsel like you do in the temple in any other place in the world. The temple is a way to renew our covenants and help others have this happiness as well in their lives. I invite each and every one of you to attend the temple regularly...don´t take for granted the blessing we have to live so close to one. On the mission I have Heard so many stories of incredible sacrifice to attend the temple. So everyone, go to the temple!!!!!!! Ah I love it!!!
I know that the temple is the house of God, and within the walls of the temple we can find answers and feel his presence as if he were in that very room. I know that this is the true church and that Joseph Smith is and was a prophet of God and that through him every essential ordinance has been restored. It´s SO TRUE!!!!
Well this week keep on keepin´ on and go to the temple. You´ll feel so much better once you go. Stay strong and keep the faith my friends.
"You´ll thank me later"
